This study examined the effect of BrainsWay® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) on PTSD patients, following activation of the traumatic memory. In this double-blind study, patients who received real stimulation showed substantial improvement in the intrusive component of the CAPS scale, after exposure to the traumatic event script. The study demonstrated that the H-coil significantly alleviated PTSD symptoms following memory activation, but not following non-provoked or sham stimulations.
